Transitioning from Military to Civilian Life


My paper is on the transition from Military life to Civilian Life. The dealings and issues that a lot of the service men and women and even their families deal with on a day to day basis. In this paper, I will write about what they go through including the families of the service men as well as the dealings with PTSD and the issues of finding work after they are out of the service.

II. Topic #2

2. How they now have to look for a job, and where their skills can be more useful to in the workforce. The agencies that are available to the Veterans that will help them with locating work. As for the families, the kids also have to adjust to life outside of the military. School is somewhat a bit different when they are in the military as opposed to them being in a civilian school. Education is the same with the exception that they have more kids in their class and they are making new friends.

III. Topic #3

1. Veterans now have to live back in civilian life and though for some it is challenging because they can be disabled or even just suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) from things that they have seen, things that they have been witnessed or participated in. It is something that will never leave them. For some, it will haunt them and for others well there can be good memories and lifelong friendships along the way. Years later, they can get together even if it is once a year and just catch up on life.
